TULSA — Tulsa Animal Welfare employees worked Friday morning to load up 100 animals from the shelter to move to Idaho for adoption due to recent flooding across the state.

The transfer of the animals will make room at the Tulsa shelter for another 100 stray animals that are displaced as a result of flooding in the area. The shelter will work to reunite the displaced animals with owners, or work to find new homes for them.

The animals were loaded from about 5-6 a.m. at the shelter, and then taken to Jones Riverside Airport in Jenks for transport. The private plane transportation was the result of a donation.
